    The Buddha said we should be lamps unto ourselves, and the whole democratic experiment depends upon trusting each other’s conscience. But what is the moral sense and where does it come from? And given that it differs so much from person to person and culture to culture, how can we know what’s right, really? These and other questions will be addressed as we look at our Fifth Principle.

    The goal of world community, with peace, liberty, and justice for all may seem like an impossible dream right now, and we may think we are naïve to even dream it. But are we, really? What does UU theology have to say about this, and how can our theology support our action?

    Rev. Dr. Leisa Huyck is a former ecologist, who became a minister because she is called to help our culture make the spiritual transformation we need in order to live on our beautiful planet sustainably, with love and justice for all. She is the founder of Viriditas Ministries, whose mission is "healing the heart, nourishing the spirit, and greening the world--with the power of love." You can find her online at viriditasministries.org.

    The interdependent web is one way to describe our inherent interconnectedness. There are many other ways. In this service, we are going to look at interconnectedness as if it were a river; all of us as drops who enter the stream from different locations and yet are flowing together on a journey seeking a common destination. Gravity guides the river. What guides us?

    We’ll recap our survey of the Seven Principles by examining the essential thread that runs through them all, but which, incredibly, is not mentioned by name at all. In song it has been called a boomerang, a losing game, a battlefield, a drug, the tender trap, the reason, the message, the way, the answer, and all you need. It is like oxygen, like a fire, like a red, red, rose, and like… WO! All true. And it is the heart of our religion.

    Transcendentalism began in 1836 with Emerson’s first book, Nature. It led to a spiritual revival within Unitarianism – not just in rural Concord, but in urban Boston, leading to activism on race, gender, and social justice. It continues to offer lessons for us today.
    Rev. John Buehrens was President of the UUA from 1993-2001. He is the author of Universalists and Unitarians in America: A People’s History [2011] and of a forthcoming book with the same title as this sermon. He retires this summer as Senior Minister of the First UU Society in San Francisco.
